Report Overview

Global Lead Acid Battery Market size was valued at USD 58.95 billion in 2019. The market is estimated to witness growth owing to the growing adoption of lead acid batteries in automobile and Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS) along with some developments in the manufacturing methods. Increasing demand for the product in off-grid power generation is expected to boost the market size.

Development in the transportation industry, along with an increase in energy storage application is projected to drive industry demand in the upcoming future. Rapid growth of the commercial vehicle, motorcycle, and passenger car manufacturing industries is also projected to drive the product demand. Growing demand for UPS in various sectors, such as banking, oil and gas, healthcare, and chemicals is positively driving the demand.

U.S. lead acid battery market

One of the restraining factors for the market is the presence of lead content as the battery material, posing adverse effects on the environment. Also, the declining cost of lithium batteries has stalled the demand, primarily owing to the technological advancements offered by the former. Continuous reduction in cost is likely to reinforce more on lithium-ion in different energy storage markets, which is also expected to restrain the market.

However, advancements in the automotive industry in India, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam are anticipated to create growth opportunities for the market. Increasing demand for pollution-free electric automobiles coupled with technological advancements is projected to fuel the demand for lead-acid batteries over the upcoming years.

Product Insights

Starting, Lighting, and Ignition (SLI) batteries contributed to the largest revenue share of the lead-acid battery market in 2019. It is projected to witness sluggish growth over the forecast period, due to higher demand for other types of products including stationery and motive. However, increasing demand in applications requiring high power including automotive is anticipated to positively influence the segment growth.

Increasing vehicle manufacturing, particularly in China, Japan, India, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, and the U.S. is expected to promote expansion over the forecast period. For instance, In October 2018, Amara Raja Batteries signed an agreement with Johnson Controls to launch a new battery technology in India which provide sophisticated consumer features and strict emission standards for the automotive industry. Such initiatives are anticipated to drive the demand for lead-acid batteries during the forecast period.

Construction Method Insights

The flooded lead-acid battery sector was the largest segment by the construction method in 2019. It is expected to lose market share owing to high maintenance cost along with complex construction. However, increasing demand for stationary applications will fuel market growth over the forecast period.

Valve Regulated Lead Acid (VRLA) segment held a 33.9% market share in 2019 and is anticipated to witness the highest growth over the forecast period. Rising demand in automotive applications owing to high output and low maintenance of the product will fuel the growth. In addition, VRLA batteries including Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) offer high resistance to vibration, minimize the terminal corrosion, extend the shelf life, and offer a low self-discharge rate. High availability of various sizes is projected to further fuel the demand over the forecast period.

Application Insights

Automotive was the largest application segment in 2019 in terms of revenue share. The extensive usage of lead-acid batteries in the automotive sector is expected to witness growth as a result of the rising automotive sector. The presence of big automotive players, such as TATA, Maruti Suzuki, Infinium Toyota, Mahindra, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Honda, and Nissan have fuelled the growth of the automotive sector in the Asia Pacific, due to their strong distribution channels and easy product availability at economical prices.

Global lead acid battery market

UPS accounted for 9.41% of the global market share in terms of revenue in 2019. The segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 6.8% from 2020 to 2027. Growing demand in various industries including hospitals, industries, educational institutes, corporate offices, research institutions, and houses is projected to fuel the growth of the segment in the forthcoming years.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific held the leading market share in 2019. The growing construction industry in emerging countries, such as China, India, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Vietnam, and Indonesia is projected to drive the utilization of lead-acid battery. According to the Society of Indian Automobiles Manufacturers, the total automotive sales grew by 14.22% in 2017-2018 over 2016-2017. Expansion in automobile sales will lead to the growth of SLI lead-acid batteries.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the most lucrative market in terms of CAGR during the forecast period on account of increasing demand for energy storage batteries in China and India. Furthermore, favorable government regulations designed to generate investments from public-private partnerships and Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) are estimated to fuel regional product demand.
